Women in the Local Church: Friendship

Two are better than one,    because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down,    one can help the other up.But pity anyone who falls    and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.    But how can one keep warm alone?Though one may be overpowered,    two can defend...

Called Out

The church is God’s people, his ecclesia or ekklesia in the Greek. The church is the “called out of” ones. We are called out of the world in order that we might be the possession of him who called. We are called out of lostness into joy. For example, Romans 1:6. Paul is writing to... Continue Reading →

Women in the Local Church: Intentional Learning

Our minds develop rapidly while young, but if you are over 30, there is a slow yet steady decline in the ability to learn new things. The hard truth is that over time, we increasingly have difficulty flexing our minds enough to learn new skills, a new language, or change a long-term attitude. If we... Continue Reading →

A Day in the Life of a Bible Teacher

As I sit at my desk this morning after having completed my lessons for the upcoming Bible workshop, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you what many of my days look like.

Women in the Local Church: Serving Well

"Working with children is not my gifting" she said, as the younger woman ushered her kids through the door of the preschool area. Yet, the message on the board signaling volunteers help is needed in the nursery had become a routine occurrence. It's no secret that 20% of the church does 80% of the work.... Continue Reading →

I've posted this previously but after looking back for myself this afternoon and considering where I've been, I thought I would share my testimony with you once more. As I... Continue Reading →

State of Thought

It was a quiet afternoon when I sat poring over creeds and confessions. Water was running through our wet-weather creek and as I peered through the glass, snowflakes began to fall. I was captivated by nature's beauty and as always, my observance of creation caused me to ponder the Creator. Stillness in the wondrous works... Continue Reading →

Get to Know Your Authors and Speakers

We’re drawn in by attractive book covers, the sensationalism of Christian celebrities, and well-trained speakers. Many times, dynamic personalities trump sound doctrine. Make no mistake, the Christian market for women is a huge money maker, primarily in books and conference ticket sales. It is sad when we find so much of our modern-day writing/speaking that...

Preach the Gospel to Yourself

One of the most critical disciplines in the life of a believer is the daily reminder of the sacrificial death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In a sense, we become preachers to ourselves.  First, you need some understanding of who God is and who you are. God is holy and although we are saints... Continue Reading →

Reading the Psalms

Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace,  thereby good will come to you. ~ Job 22:21 My focus for social media through the end of this month will be from my biblical counseling ministry. In the Facebook video titled Preach the Gospel to Yourself, I mentioned reading the Psalms so I wanted to... Continue Reading →

Favorite Books for Growth

I encourage all Christian women to take up the discipline of reading to honor God and for the growth of the church. In addition to the Bible, which books should Christians read to help them grow? I’ve pulled titles below from my personal bookshelves and recently revised my list. I appreciate the work from these authors that... Continue Reading →
